Postnatal Pilates

Postnatal Pilates is a fun way of regaining muscle strength and tone following the birth of your baby. Physiolates offer both private 1:1 sessions and group classes run by highly qualified physiotherapists.

How it works

Pilates incorporates a series of precise, controlled exercises which focus on increasing deep core strength by using body weight, movement and small pieces of specialised Pilates equipment. Exercises are adapted for postnatal women to focus on deep core and pelvic floor strength to ensure you recover as quickly as possible following labour. Pilates is great for regaining your fitness and toning up in a fun and safe way.
